Tiny i.MX6 module has a trim little carrier too

LXer - Thu, 2016-12-01 22:00
E-Con’s Linux-ready “eSOMiMX6-micro” COM offers an i.MX6 SoC, optional WiFi/BT and GbE, and a 54 x 20mm footprint. Its “Meissa-I” carrier is only 80 x 40mm. In 2014, we called the E-Con Systems eSOMiMX6 computer-on-module “tiny” because it used the 70 x 45mm “?Qseven” form-factor to expand upon the i.MX6 SoC. Now E-Con has bested […]
